New Hope, Pennsylvania youngsters Mickey Melchiondo and Aaron Freeman formed the band Ween in 1984 and created the personas of Dean Ween and Gene Ween respectively. The band went on to release 11 studio albums and played hundreds of shows until they broke up in 2012. Earlier this week Ween announced a reunion that for now spans three shows in February. In honor of the return of Ween, let’s look at a short film about Dean and Gene’s early days.
The brief documentary was put together by Steven Phipps in 2005 as his senior project for film school. Phipps interviewed a handful of New Hope locals who provide background on the early days of Ween. The mini-documentary contains footage from the first Ween performance as well as other early shows.
Ween returns February 12 – 14 at 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colorado.
We don’t currently have any upcoming shows for Ween.
